Book by Timas Petraitis
Why am I telling you my savings story? I’m not trying to sell, but rather to share why it worked for me and why it still does. It’s important that you find your own answers to life’s various “whys”. Both the “why life is worth living” and other less fundamental ones.
Tim Petraitis has been working as a psychologist-psychotherapist for 16 years, giving seminars and trainings, and in his spare time he is a food courier. His regular experiments in life may seem unusual or even radical, but they are part and parcel of his personality. One of these experiments is the subject of ‘Money Letters’.
70,000 euros. That’s how much he saved in five years without going into business, but by discovering and adapting his savings model. But this is not a story of easy and quick success. And it is certainly not just about money.
Through lifestyle and habit changes, he has emerged from financial and personal crises, and at the same time changed his attitude towards money and his outlook on life. It is this experience, practical advice and tasks that the author shares in his letters.
This book is also a psychologist’s insights into a happier relationship with the world. And money has a role to play here. It can affect relationships, health, leisure, and vice versa – leisure, health, relationships can affect money.
